Kyle Larson & Brad Sweet’s High Limit Sprint Car Series Acquires All Star Sprints From Tony Stewart

After a month of speculation, ownership of the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Car Series has changed hands.

Out is three-time NASCAR Cup Series Champion Tony Stewart; in is four-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Champion Brad Sweet and his brother-in-law, 2021 NASCAR Cup Series Champion, Kyle Larson.

“We’ve learned a lot throughout our inaugural midweek season this year,” Sweet said in the announcement released on Monday. “We have a strong desire to expand on what we’ve learned and continue to contribute to and grow sprint car racing. Kyle and I, like Tony, believe in this sport and want to provide more opportunities for teams, drivers and tracks.”

Stewart, who purchased the Series in 2015, was the fourth different owner since the series’ creation in 1970. Since then, he grew the tour by expanding its footprint throughout the country, adding to the purse structure and even entering a streaming component with FloRacing in 2020.

“My intention was to unite what had become a divided class of regional 410 winged sprint car racing,” Stewart said in the release. “Over the last nine years, not only have we unified, but we also pushed the boundaries on our geographic footprint, purse structure and race format, while providing a Series that has groomed young talent and provided a continued course for our seasoned veteran drivers.”

Through that time, Stewart believes he’s leaving the Series in a better place than when he acquired it.

“We have developed great relationships with corporate partners, tracks, promoters, team owners and drivers,” he said. “All of which have contributed to the success of the All Star Series. The time is right to pass the torch to Kyle and Brad. I have had many conversations with them both on their overall vision for 410 racing and I am confident that with their leadership, the sport will continue to thrive into the foreseeable future.”

During this season, Larson and Sweet formed the High Limit Sprint Car Series. The 2023 schedule featured 12 mid-week events that paid large winner’s shares with a solid purse structure throughout the field.
